I think most ROWs are anywhere 30-50 feet, so cut that in half for each side from center of visible trackage. Keep in mind, just because you are on the pretty side of the sign, you still may be on RR property and asked to leave. When you disregard a sign and walk past it, it turns into defiant trespassing, and can be a greater charge if prosecuted. It usually just ends up with someone puffing their chest and making you leave unless it is an actual LEO that witnesses the offense (which can go either way too). Depending on the crew, etc., it may go the other way for you and get you some "ins", etc. if you are respectful and not a dork and let them work and not bother them or make them worry about your safety. We ALL have trespassed, and anyone that tells you they haven't is FOS.
